Iris, a young woman caring for her sick brother Raleigh, is unable to afford the costs of his treatment for leukemia, her brother's oncologist, Dr. Barden, introduces Iris to Shepard Lambrick, a philanthropist, who offers her a deal: if she wins a parlour game at a dinner party, his charitable foundation will pay for Raleigh's treatment and locate a bone marrow donor for him immediately. Dr. Barden tells Iris that he won. Iris reluctantly accepts; the next day at Lambrick's manor, Iris is introduced to his son Julian and the other contestants: Lucas. A steak and foie gras dinner is served but Iris, a vegetarian declines to eat it. Shepard offers her $10,000.00 to compromise her principles.
When Shepard realizes Conway is a recovering alcoholic, he offers him $10,000.00 to drink a glass of wine. When Conway declines, Shepard offers him $50,000.00 to drink an entire decanter of Scotch. Conway reluctantly drinks the Scotch. After dinner ends, the game begins. Shepard reveals it to be a version of the party game "would you rather" in which players must choose between two options. Shepard gives his guests the opportunity to leave without playing. After Shepard's butler, a former MI5 agent named Bevans, wheels in an electric shock machine, Conway attempts to leave but is shot dead; each contestant is given 15 seconds to choose between shocking themselves or another person. Cal shocks himself instead of Amy. Amy shocks Linda, who temporarily passes out. Linda shocks Peter, who attempts to leave but is threatened by Bevans. Lucas is shocked next by Travis. Iris chooses to shock herself instead of Cal. During the break and Julian get into an argument. In the second round, each contestant has 30 seconds to choose between stabbing someone in the thigh with an ice pick or whipping Travis three times with a sjambok.

Knowing Travis will not survive another whipping, Peter stabs Linda in the femoral artery and tries to stop the bleeding. Linda stabs Amy and Amy elbows her in the nose. Amy, more focused on eliminating everyone else, is allowed to stab any player she wants and chooses Iris. Instead of stabbing Iris in the leg she stabs her on her side, close to her lung, trying to get Iris eliminated by killing her. With Travis and Lucas' help, Iris lives. However, it is revealed that Linda has died from her wound. Cal chooses to whip Travis so he'll have a higher chance of winning by rendering Travis unresponsive.

The United States of America known as the United States or America, is a country composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, various possessions. At 3.8 million square miles, the United States is the world's third or fourth largest country by total area and is smaller than the entire continent of Europe's 3.9 million square miles. With a population of over 327 million people, the U. S. is the third most populous country. The capital is Washington, D. C. and the largest city by population is New York City. Forty-eight states and the capital's federal district are contiguous in North America between Canada and Mexico; the State of Alaska is in the northwest corner of North America, bordered by Canada to the east and across the Bering Strait from Russia to the west. The State of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific Ocean; the U. S. territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, stretching across nine official time zones. The diverse geography and wildlife of the United States make it one of the world's 17 megadiverse countries.
Paleo-Indians migrated from Siberia to the North American mainland at least 12,000 years ago. European colonization began in the 16th century; the United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies following the French and Indian War led to the American Revolution, which began in 1775, the subsequent Declaration of Independence in 1776; the war ended in 1783 with the United States becoming the first country to gain independence from a European power. The current constitution was adopted in 1788, with the first ten amendments, collectively named the Bill of Rights, being ratified in 1791 to guarantee many fundamental civil liberties; the United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century, acquiring new territories, displacing Native American tribes, admitting new states until it spanned the continent by 1848. During the second half of the 19th century, the Civil War led to the abolition of slavery.
By the end of the century, the United States had extended into the Pacific Ocean, its economy, driven in large part by the Industrial Revolution, began to soar. The Spanish–American War and World War I confirmed the country's status as a global military power; the United States emerged from World War II as a global superpower, the first country to develop nuclear weapons, the only country to use them in warfare, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Sweeping civil rights legislation, notably the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, outlawed discrimination based on race or color. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union competed in the Space Race, culminating with the 1969 U. S. Moon landing; the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 left the United States as the world's sole superpower. The United States is the world's oldest surviving federation, it is a representative democracy.
The United States is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organization of American States, other international organizations. The United States is a developed country, with the world's largest economy by nominal GDP and second-largest economy by PPP, accounting for a quarter of global GDP; the U. S. economy is post-industrial, characterized by the dominance of services and knowledge-based activities, although the manufacturing sector remains the second-largest in the world. The United States is the world's largest importer and the second largest exporter of goods, by value. Although its population is only 4.3% of the world total, the U. S. holds 31% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share of global wealth concentrated in a single country. Despite wide income and wealth disparities, the United States continues to rank high in measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, human development, per capita GDP, worker productivity.
The United States is the foremost military power in the world, making up a third of global military spending, is a leading political and scientific force internationally. In 1507, the German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller produced a world map on which he named the lands of the Western Hemisphere America in honor of the Italian explorer and cartographer Amerigo Vespucci; the first documentary evidence of the phrase "United States of America" is from a letter dated January 2, 1776, written by Stephen Moylan, Esq. to George Washington's aide-de-camp and Muster-Master General of the Continental Army, Lt. Col. Joseph Reed. Moylan expressed his wish to go "with full and ample powers from the United States of America to Spain" to seek assistance in the revolutionary war effort; the first known publication of the phrase "United States of America" was in an anonymous essay in The Virginia Gazette newspaper in Williamsburg, Virginia, on April 6, 1776. The second draft of the Articles of Confederation, prepared by John Dickinson and completed by June 17, 1776, at the latest, declared "The name of this Confederation shall be the'United States of America'".
The final version of the Articles sent to the states for ratification in late 1777 contains the sentence "The Stile of this Confederacy shall be'The United States of America'". In June 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote the phrase "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" in all capitalized letters in the headline of his "original Rough draught" of the Declaration of Independence; this draft of the document did not surface unti
An actor is a person who portrays a character in a performance. The actor performs "in the flesh" in the traditional medium of the theatre or in modern media such as film and television; the analogous Greek term is ὑποκριτής "one who answers". The actor's interpretation of their role—the art of acting—pertains to the role played, whether based on a real person or fictional character. Interpretation occurs when the actor is "playing themselves", as in some forms of experimental performance art. In ancient Greece and Rome, the medieval world, the time of William Shakespeare, only men could become actors, women's roles were played by men or boys. After the English Restoration of 1660, women began to appear on stage in England. In modern times in pantomime and some operas, women play the roles of boys or young men. After 1660 in England, when women first started to appear on stage, the terms actor or actress were used interchangeably for female performers, but influenced by the French actrice, actress became the used term for women in theater and film.
The etymology is a simple derivation from actor with -ess added. When referring to groups of performers of both sexes, actors is preferred. Actor is used before the full name of a performer as a gender-specific term. Within the profession, the re-adoption of the neutral term dates to the post-war period of the 1950 and'60s, when the contributions of women to cultural life in general were being reviewed; when The Observer and The Guardian published their new joint style guide in 2010, it stated "Use for both male and female actors. The guide's authors stated that "actress comes into the same category as authoress, manageress,'lady doctor','male nurse' and similar obsolete terms that date from a time when professions were the preserve of one sex.". "As Whoopi Goldberg put it in an interview with the paper:'An actress can only play a woman. I'm an actor – I can play anything.'" The UK performers' union Equity has no policy on the use of "actor" or "actress". An Equity spokesperson said that the union does not believe that there is a consensus on the matter and stated that the "...subject divides the profession".
In 2009, the Los Angeles Times stated that "Actress" remains the common term used in major acting awards given to female recipients. With regard to the cinema of the United States, the gender-neutral term "player" was common in film in the silent film era and the early days of the Motion Picture Production Code, but in the 2000s in a film context, it is deemed archaic. However, "player" remains in use in the theatre incorporated into the name of a theatre group or company, such as the American Players, the East West Players, etc. Actors in improvisational theatre may be referred to as "players". In 2015, Forbes reported that "...just 21 of the 100 top-grossing films of 2014 featured a female lead or co-lead, while only 28.1% of characters in 100 top-grossing films were female...". "In the U. S. there is an "industry-wide in salaries of all scales. On average, white women get paid 78 cents to every dollar a white man makes, while Hispanic women earn 56 cents to a white male's dollar, Black women 64 cents and Native American women just 59 cents to that."
Forbes' analysis of US acting salaries in 2013 determined that the "...men on Forbes' list of top-paid actors for that year made 21/2 times as much money as the top-paid actresses. That means that Hollywood's best-compensated actresses made just 40 cents for every dollar that the best-compensated men made." The first recorded case of a performing actor occurred in 534 BC when the Greek performer Thespis stepped onto the stage at the Theatre Dionysus to become the first known person to speak words as a character in a play or story. Prior to Thespis' act, Grecian stories were only expressed in song, in third person narrative. In honor of Thespis, actors are called Thespians; the male actors in the theatre of ancient Greece performed in three types of drama: tragedy and the satyr play. Western theatre developed and expanded under the Romans; the theatre of ancient Rome was a thriving and diverse art form, ranging from festival performances of street theatre, nude dancing, acrobatics, to the staging of situation comedies, to high-style, verbally elaborate tragedies.
As the Western Roman Empire fell into decay through the 4th and 5th centuries, the seat of Roman power shifted to Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire. Records show that mime, scenes or recitations from tragedies and comedies and other entertainments were popular. From the 5th century, Western Europe was plunged into a period of general disorder. Small nomadic bands of actors traveled around Europe throughout the period, performing wherever they could find an audience. Traditionally, actors were not of high status. Early Middle Ages actors were denounced by the Church during the Dark Ages, as they were viewed as dangerous and pagan. In many parts of Europe, traditional beliefs of the region and time period meant actors could not receive a Christian burial. In the Early Middle Ages, churches in Europe began staging dramatized versions of biblical events. By the middle of the 11th century, liturgical drama had spread from Russia to Scandinavia

The film begins with two cars racing in the middle of the desert. Biker Cary Ford tries to pass them, he does so and stops at a diner which his old girlfriend Shane owns. There are pictures all over the wall of Shane back when they were together. Ford takes one of the pictures, he goes back outside and the two punks who didn't let him pass show up. The three get into a fight but Ford beats up both of them. Next Ford meets up with his two best friends Val, they take a ride back to town to see a motorcycle party. Ford sees the two begin to talk with Shane saying that she is mad that Ford left. A biker gang called the Hellions pulls up which contains Henry James the leader, his girlfriend China and his right-hand man Luther. Henry is saying. Ford tells Henry that he stole the bikes to pay off his own bike; the Hellions leave and Ford and Val all take a ride on their bikes. Another biker gang, friends with the Hellions pull up; the black biker gang called the Reapers, contains Trey the leader and his brother Junior.
The gang says that he is going down. Ford and his two friends and Shane arrive at a nightclub; the three gangs cause a big brawl. Junior runs into the bathroom. Henry and Luther are in the bathroom and confront Junior there. Junior says that he is sorry for not paying Henry back for a blown drug deal and begs Henry to give him some time to work it out, but Henry kills Junior by strangling him to death with a biker chain. Ford and the two friends go back to a motel to stay for the night. Meanwhile Ford and Shane are in the back of the motel talking. At the murder scene where Junior was found dead, two FBI agents show up. A woman and her partner, Jay McPherson, they say they will find out who killed Junior. China says, she says. Trey tells his biker gang to catch Ford and kill him. Next Ford and the two friends stop at a diner. Shane sees on the TV. Shane tells the four leave the diner and hit the road; the Reapers chases the four. The four ride into a forest full of palm trees to get away. Trey's gang members meets up with them in the forest.
Ford tells the friends to split up. Ford rides out of the forest into a desert. Trey follows. Here at the desert we see a train. Ford jumps up onto the train and Trey follows riding on top of the train. After a while, Ford jumps off the train and Trey follows. Trey slips and falls in front of the train and his leg gets caught on the tracks. Ford decides to help Trey.. Ford gives him his bike. Shane and Val meet up with Ford and the four find a cave for the night to stay. Ford talks it out with his friends and says that he should call the FBI agents to tell them that he is innocent. Ford calls them and McPherson picks up the phone, he says that he doesn't believe Henderson does. We next see that it is morning and the four leave the cave and find a huge truck and hop in the back of it; the trucker doesn't know. As the truck is driving it gets stopped by the cops; the four in the back take what is inside the back of the truck... a fast car. Just before the agents open the back of the truck and Shane bust out of the truck in the car and the two friends on their bikes.
The four drive onto a highway. The FBI agents so does Trey; the next scene takes place on the highway with tons of other cars. Ford jumps onto Val's bike and tells Val to ride with Shane. Trey and the two agents follow; the partners aren't paying attention and their black Hummer hits a construction pipe and flies into the air and lands upside down on top of a car. Trey rides his bike into the two crash. Ford holding Trey at gunpoint explains to Trey, he says that he wants to find out who killed Junior. Ford says that he set them both up. At Shane's garage, Ford calls Shane and tells her that he wants her and Val and Dalton to come and meet him and Trey there. Just after that, the tw
